“THE PEARL HUNTERS” S/S 2016 Collection

The Pearl Hunters Collection takes influence from the 1950's style and the Japanese tradition of Ama.

Ama is symbolized under the name of the "Sea Woman”. The Sea-Woman is seen as a free-spirited diver whose life devotion for beauty is defined throughout collecting pearls. We are continuing the Pearl Hunter influence of the strong Japanese women who hunt for pearls and the style icons of Hollywood who epitomize the "hunt" for power, stardom and precious jewels.

The Pearl Hunter’s collection is shaped around the Japanese simplicity of a minimalist look with origami folded fabric and watercolor print. The collection values the pearls as a metaphor for a fine, beautiful and rare elegance.
